Winter’s Hill Estate 2014 Pinot Noir Dry Rosé, Dundee Hills, $19

By on June 13, 2015

Winters-Hill-Estate-2014-Pinot-Noir-Dry-RoséRussell Gladhart took over the winemaking from his wife, Delphine, starting with this vintage, and they’ve continued their reputation for producing estate Pinot Noir in a dry rosé with this Sept. 19 harvest. Its lighter color suggests a Provence approach, and the fermentation with three-year-old French oak barrels leads to aromas of fresh Van cherry, raspberry reduction, charcuterie and sage. On the palate, it’s dominated by black currant and black cherry flavors, which carries a touch of tannin and weight on the midpalate before a cleansing burst of tangerine. Suggested pairings include crab cakes, deviled eggs or a hummus platter.
